The St. Louis delegation of the nationwide nonviolent anti-war campaign Occupation Project staged two demonstrations [1, 2, 3] this week at US Rep Russ Carnahan's office in Brentwood, just days after the project was launched. The latter rally this afternoon lead to arrests of 7 members, and all were released on bail by the evening [AP story]. As per their press release, the protesters returned to the office (located at Manchester and Brentwood) to secure a public commitment from Rep. Carnahan to vote against all future funding for the Iraq war. While in the office, the protesters read aloud the Litany of the Dead, names of Iraqis killed by violence under the US occupation.

Activists (and Rain) Drown Out St. Louis-Based White Supremacist Council of Conservative Citizens in Jackson, Michigan

ratnerinkandconces.jpg
Anti-racist activists have reported to Media Mouse that the St. Louis, MO-based white supremacist Council of Conservative Citizens, a racist group with origins in the segregationist White Citizens’ Councils of the south and active recently in Grand Rapids, were effectively disrupted in Jackson, Michigan by the combined presence of a large number of anti-racists and rain. The Michigan Council of Conservative Citizens scheduled the first of two rallies it plans in the state in order to build support for the passage of the Michigan Civil Rights Initiative (MCRI) 7/30/06 in Jackson. Anti-racist activists report that they showed up shortly before 2:00pm to the Council’s “Anti-Affirmative Action Rally” to find that the fifteen anti-racists essentially matched the small crowd of Council of Conservative Citizens members and their supporters and the group was consequently easily able to halt the scheduled proceedings of the rally.
